Life's A Zoo UK Stampers Challenge 51

This tag is for this week's challenge on UK Stampers Forum and the theme is Z is for Zoo.

I had rather a struggle due to lack of the right type of stamps but found this cute set in my stash. It's called It's A Jungle Out There by My Favorite Things and came from Sir Stampalot a while back.

I stamped the various images and coloured them with markers and water. I cut them out and then dry embossed them on the back to give them a rounded 3D look. I made the tag from white card and coloured it with Distress inks in Scattered Straw, Peeled Paint, China Blue and Vintage Photo. I then stamped on it in the same colours some of the grunge backgrounds from my set (see Challenge 50 post). I then added the text using a saying from the Jungle set, some Hero Arts small alphabet stamps and a Stamp It Antique Alphabetstamp (1712G) from Kangaroo Paw Prints.

Love this, Fliss. It does look like an illustration from a child's book. And that grass stamp (?) is really cool.
